We had our first 25FB for eight years and spent 1,400 nights in it. We did a lot of research and shopping before replacing it. We replaced it with a brand new 25FB.

Just got my new one back from Jackson center. Ducted AC was checked out while there, a few minor things fixed and I replaced the AC louvers with the really nicely constructed vent covers that can be adjusted or turned off. They are made of thick metal and are in my opinion a "must have" item for the ducted AC.

Brian- Woa there boys and girls...where are those white boxes from?? I never been there, but thought this was AS only?? curious about your experience and any information on the ducting issues...we are really thinking hard about selling the 14 for a 15 or 16...thoughts are appreciated if you learn any differences...and also, while there; ask about the new "kitchen/lounge modification" we see at Airstream Adventures Custom....is AS factory thinking about that as an option?? would make a whole lot of sense to get it done right first time as an option and be cheaper than paying $7200 upgrade to destroy factory set up in 25/27' models who want the usability this add on option offers...let me know if you hear.
Thanks,

Thanks,
The white boxes you see in the Terraport photos are an old Argosy and an Airstream fifth wheel.

I'll see if I can dig up any info the kitchen/lounge modification.

When having mods done at JC, do you stay in the trailer on premises at night, and they work on the trailer during the day?

The answers to your questions are yes and yes. You spend the night in your Airstream at one of the full hook-up sites in the Terraport. The Service Center comes with a tractor and picks up your Airstream at 7 AM and takes over to a service bay in the factory about 100 yards away from the Terraport. Your Airstream is worked on during the day. They bring it back to your campsite in the late afternoon.

Brian... thanks for the info. Is there a customer lounge area where customers hang out while their rigs are being worked on?

Yes, a very nice one with couches and overstuffed chairs.
